The ducks at your local park may seem a fairly lazy bunch, waddling around, snarfing up breadcrumbs. But maybe that's just because they spent their adorable chickhood training in mini-games for races that would take them across five different terrains in a quest for eternal glory. I mean, after that, you'd like to retire, right? Relive those exciting days in the Wix Games fourquel Duck Life 4.
The game combines favorite minigames from previous installments of the series with new ones, and each area (running, swimming, flying, climbing, and jumping) features 3 mini-games, to keep repetition down a bit. Just like in earlier games, during the actual races you can't do anything... other than cheer at your computer screen, so get out those pompoms if you have any. Compared to previous Duck Life games, this one may seem to be more grindy, since the game suggests you should build a team of three ducks, each of which needs to be trained separately. Just keep in mind this is really only a suggestion. It is very possible, and indeed faster, to train just one duck. Plus this leaves you with more money to buy your duck ridiculous hats. Duck Life 4 shows just how far the series has come, and though it's still a relatively simple and silly collection of minigames, it's the perfect thing to sink your spare time into when you want something fun and casual. Viking helmeted avians ahoy!
